FARGO MOORHEAD CONVENTION AND VISITORS BUREAU PROMOTES THE FM AREA AS A DESTINATION FOR VISITORS.
ith over 80 trains a day going through the area, Fargo-Moorhead is not only bringing in coal and railcars, but we are also attracting visitors from all over the US. The historic Great Northern Railway depot in Fargo is a signature of downtown and is recognized on the FM Convention and Visitors Bureau’s website (fargomoorhead.org). The days of traveling by train have become rare, but the FM- CVB is still determined to make the FM area a staple destination stop. Cole Carley, president of the FMCVB, shared his strategy for making the FM area a 30-year tourist hotspot.

FIRST OF ALL, WHY IS HAVING A PERSONAL TRAINER IMPORTANT? The biggest thing that I hear from my clients is, “I probably would have come into the gym today, but there’s no way I would have worked that hard.” Hav- ing a personal trainer gives you both expert knowledge for optimal training, but it also allows you to push your workouts harder than you normally would. Along with that, many people feel obligated to attend their workouts and are not as temped to skip when they have a personal trainer count- ing on them to be there.
WHY IS THERE A TRANSITION FROM ONE-ON-ONE PER- SONAL TRAINING TO GROUP TRAINING? 7KH¿UVWDQGPRVWREYLRXVUHDVRQ of group training is the reduction in cost per session. Whether it is a couple that comes in to train or a group of girlfriends, you can
get a better value when you take the group training approach. You DOVR¿QGWKDWWKHUHLVIULHQGO\ cont....
FMS Wellness competition between group members;; this can cause them to push each other harder than they would if they were by themselves. There is also a unique social ben- H¿WWRZRUNLQJRXWLQWKHJURXS Although we monitor the rest time between sets, every now and then there is some down time to catch up with friends and build on your relationships.
WHAT ARE SOME CHALLENG- ES THAT YOU HAVE ENCOUN- TERED WITH PERSONAL TRAINING? We do monitor the group size and like to keep them a reason- able size. If the groups get too big, it is hard to focus on every- one’s form when performing an
H[HUFLVH,WFDQDOVREHGLI¿FXOWWR see how hard people are pushing themselves, so we really like to watch the group sizes to ensure they are not too big.
HOW DO YOU FORMAT THE ROUTINE? Depending on the exercise, either we will have the entire group going at once, or we will section it off where one person goes while the other is resting. Sometimes we will use partner exercises where it is critical to have more than one person for the exercise. In that case, everyone trains at the same time and rests at the same time.
IN A GROUP TRAINING SESSION, ARE YOU STILL ABLE TO BUILD A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CLIENT? Socially, I think group-training works quite well. It is also great to build friendships in a group setting compared to one-on-one training.
WHAT ARE THE RATES FOR A GROUP WORKOUT? For every additional person we add to the group, we only bring the price up $10, the total is the split between the group members. It usually cost around $17 per training session with a three-person group compared to a $30 one-on-one session.

BAFFLED BY BUG SPRAY
s concern about environmental toxins and chemicals grow, our focus turns to common household products and their safety. One product commonly used during the summer months is insect repellent. We field many questions in our office from patients who are baffled by bug spray; what is safe and effective? The most commonly used chemical in commercial insect repellents is DEET; this is used in more than 230 different productsâ€”in concentrations of up to an astounding 100 percent. DEET is a pesticide and has been associated with a variety of health problems ranging from dizziness to seizures. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises against using repellents containing more than 10 percent DEET on kids under 6 years of age. Other potential hazards can lurk in commercial bug sprays, such as the chemical permethrin, which is a neu-
rotoxin. At relatively high doses, its effects can include tremors, loss of coordination, elevated body temperature, aggressive behavior and learning disruption. Even when used in low doses it can cause aggressive behavior, disruption of eating habits and agitation. The Environmental Protection Agency labeled it as a carcinogen because it causes lung tumors in female mice and liver tumors in mice of both sexes. It is also implicated in chromosome abnormalities in both human and hamster cells and can hinder immune functions. If you absolutely must use a repellent, it should only be used on your clothing, never on your skin. It is far too deadly to consider using it on your skin. As more adverse health effects from toxic chemicals used in insect repellents come to light, more and more natural insect repellents are cont....

Sanford Health Manager of Exercise Physiology MS, CSCS
The POWER Center is expected to be ¿QLVKHGE\ mid-August.
THE POWER CENTER HAS A UNIQUE SHAPE, IS THERE ANY REASON FOR THAT? This shape replicates the POWER Center used in Sioux Falls and is signature of Sanford POWER. The forty-foot ceiling also gives us some clearance room when working with our athletes. We can throw objects without worrying about the ceiling get- ting in the way. WHO IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE FOR THE POWER CENTER? Our target audience is anybody. You are not required to be a high perfor- mance athlete to participate in the POWER program. In fact, you are not required to have any prior experience or knowledge about strength training. Anyone of any age and ability that EHOLHYHVWKH\FDQEHQH¿WIURPRXU program is encouraged to come out and train with us. We offer one-on- one and group training.

IS THE POWER CENTER GOING TO BE GROUP ORIENTED OR ONE-ÂON-ÂONE? This Â really Â depends Â on Â the Â require-Â ments Â of Â the Â client. Â Â With Â more Â space Â we Â are Â able Â to Â offer Â larger Â group Â training. Â Â For Â instance, Â if Â a Â team Â wants Â to Â train Â together, Â we Â can Â provide Â the Â staff Â and Â facility Â for Â that. Â Â On Â the Â other Â hand, Â we Â can Â concentrate Â on Â one Â individual Â who Â is Â looking Â to Â improve Â their Â strength, Â speed, Â etc. HOW IS THE NEW FACILITY GOING TO ADVANCE THE POWER PROGRAM? For Â one, Â we Â are Â going Â to Â have Â maxi-Â mal Â training Â surfaces. Â Â For Â instance, Â if Â DQDWKOHWHSOD\VDWXUIVSHFLÂżFVSRUW we Â have Â that;Íž Â or, Â if Â you Â compete Â on Â ice, Â we Â have Â a Â surface Â for Â that Â as Â well. Â Â It Â will Â be Â unique Â to Â have Â all Â forms Â of Â surfaces Â in Â one Â facility Â accessible Â all Â year Â long. Â Â Our Â training Â philosophy Â will Â stay Â the Â same, Â but Â the Â facility Â will Â be Â a Â lot Â more Â accommodating Â for Â the Â athlete. Â

WHY DID YOU JOIN THE POWER PROGRAM? Although I was working out almost every day, I was still getting up in the morning and “feeling old.” I could not go outside and keep up with the kids and my energy just felt sapped. My workout regimen was composed of cardio and machine lifts and it just wasn’t getting the job done. I decided to try the POWER program because I was looking for more out of my workout.
AT YOUR AGE, MOST PEOPLE WOULD NOT DARE PERFORM SOME OF THE LIFTS YOU ARE DOING. WHY IS IT SAFE? The trainers here are great. They know exactly how to ease you into the program. In fact, they made me lift just the bar for a couple weeks until my form was perfect. Then, they slowly added weight and monitored my lifts to make sure I main- tained proper form and technique. The trainers truly make a difference in this program. If I had to do this by myself, I would
probably be injured or burnt-out by now. WHAT BENEFITS HAVE YOU SEEN FROM THE PROGRAM? Most notably, I have noticed an increase in energy. I get up feeling re- juvenated and revitalized. Even though I am working out harder than I was be- fore, I feel like I have more energy and like I am in my thirties again. I have also noticed increased strength DQGÀH[LELOLW\WKURXJKWKH program, which is great to see gains for someone my age.

ers at Sanford do a great job of preparing you for the Olympic-style training and really ease you into the program.
“IN ORDER TO CHANGE YOUR BODY, YOU NEED TO LIFT HEAVIER WEIGHTS AND THESE EXPLOSIVE LIFTS THAT WE’RE PERFORMING IN THE POWER PROGRAM GET YOUR HEART RATE UP.”
WHY DID YOU JOIN THE POWER PROGRAM? I do the POWER program to stay in shape. For me this includes looking good on the outside, feeling good on the inside, and preventing disease and health problems. I also stopped lifting weights after college and I needed something to get me back into resistance training.

WHAT IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION WHEN WOMEN HEAR “POWER” FROM THE POWER PRO- GRAM? I believe many women think that they are going to get big and bulky if they perform some of the Olym- pic lifts that are involved in the POWER program. This simply is not true. In fact, after being in the pro- gram for a while, I noticed that I really started to see a lot of tone throughout my body. In addition, an- other misconception is that women might be hesitant to try the program because of fear of injury. The train-

STAR ACUPUNCTURE AND CHINESE HERBS
TASHA BOEHLAND BRINGS HER EASTERN MEDICINE TO FARGO WITH 7-STAR ACUPUNCTURE & CHINESE HERBS.
Tasha Boehland How did you get into WKH ¿HOG RI QDWXUDO and holistic medicine? I became interested in alternative medicine as a teenager. Acupunc- ture was always so mys- terious and intriguing to me. With four types of doctors in my family, I started college with pre-med in mind. Dur- ing my second year of college, I followed my alternative medicine
yearning and attended The Acupressure In- stitute in Berkeley, California. There I was introduced to the foun- dations of Chinese med- icine and was instantly hooked. I knew there was no turning back for me and spent the next 10 years practicing Eastern-style massage and other healing arts. I decided to follow my dream and enroll into
the American Academy of Acupuncture & Ori- ental Medicine’s 3,180- hour Master’s Degree program. I moved back to Minnesota in 2007 to start Chinese medi- FLQH WUDLQLQJ DQG ¿Q- ished in March of 2011. What is Acupuncture and what is the history behind the treatment? Acupuncture, one of the eight branches of Tra-
ditional Chinese Medi- cine (TCM), has been around for 2,000 to 5,000 years. Acupunc- ture simply strives to restore equilibrium in the body by using spe- FL¿F DFXSXQFWXUH SRLQWV that lie on meridians in the body.

nating Â authority Â for Â health Â within Â the Â United Â Nations Â system. Â Â My Â guess Â as Â to Â why Â they Â recommend Â acupunc-Â
ture Â is Â because Â they Â are Â highly Â aware Â of Â its Â ef-Â fectiveness, Â its Â safety, Â affordability, Â avail-Â ability Â and Â its Â lack Â of Â harmful Â side-Âeffects. What Â certain Â conditions Â or Â diseases Â is Â acu-Â puncture Â used Â to Â treat? The Â WHO Â recommends Â acupuncture Â for Â more Â than Â 100 Â diseases, Â and Â before Â the Â intro-Â duction Â of Â West-Â ern Â medicine Â to Â China, Â they Â used Â TCM Â to Â treat Â practically Â every-Â thing. Â Â Today, Â it Â is Â commonly Â used Â to Â treat Â pain, Â headaches Â and Â migraines, Â carpal Â tunnel, Â arthritis, Â infertility, Â neuro-Â logical Â disorders, Â insomnia, Â stress, Â anxiety/depres-Â sion, Â addictions, Â allergies Â and Â much Â more!

FMS HEALTH sensitive or very fearful of needles, including acupressure. What is holistic medicine and how does acupunc- ture fall under the cat- egory of holistic health? There is a connection between the health of the body, mind and spirit—you cannot cure one without acknowl- edging the others. A good example of this is
7-Star Acupuncture gastrointestinal disor- ders. While focusing on bringing the diges- tive system into equilib- rium, I would also look at a person’s mental and dietary health. Often stress, which resides in the brain, but manifests itself in the gut, is de- termined to be a major culprit of G.I. disorders.
